The screening will take place on Sunday, June 28, at 8:30 am in the Moscone Center West, Room 300. The event will be open to all ALA attendees and will feature a post-screening discussion with Review contributor and Berkeley professor Mark Danner, who features in the film.

About the film:
Acclaimed filmmaker Martin Scorsese and longtime documentary collaborator David Tedeschi ride the waves of literary, political, and cultural history as charted by the influential publication, The New York Review of Books, America’s leading journal of ideas for over 50 years. This provocative film explores the power of ideas in shaping history. The film weaves rarely seen archival footage of cultural icons, newly filmed interviews with many of the Review’s current contributors with original footage reflecting the humming, restless energy of the paper’s brilliant and charismatic editor Robert Silvers at work in the Review’s West Village offices.
